Organizations operating in the healthcare sector are well aware of the importance of having a pure and reliable power source which is available at ALL times. Any power disruption is likely to have disastrous consequences translated into huge losses in equipment or even in human life.
Besides the need to provide redundant uninterruptible power at all times, healthcare providers have to ensure the quality of power that their sensitive equipment receives. Imaging and diagnostics equipment have to be provided with pure and reliable power source to provide optimal results. Power pollutants such as noise, harmonic distortion, and frequency variations cause interference that would distort the accuracy of the equipment and would shorten the life of its electronic components.
For healthcare applications, PCE UPS SYSTEMS Inc. highly recommends deploying redundant solutions that utilize a parallel architecture.PCE's NP Series of on-line UPSs is designed to provide the ultimate performance in power protection and redundancy with up to eight redundant machines suitable for most critical applications. It ranges from 20kVA up to 400kVA with the ability to reach 3200kVA when connecting eight units in parallel. NP UPS is equipped and designed to simplify and accelerate daily monitoring and maintenance tasks.
To get the most effective power buffering system for a healthcare environment, PCE recommends VPM Modular Series, a true on-line UPS designed to meet any specific need for power, battery backup time, and redundancy. VPM Series is capable of acting in a parallel configuration and offers an upgrade setup to enable you to easily modify your existing solution whenever your load requirements change.
PCE’s Modu6 / Modu8 Series represents a world class, redundant, scalable, power protection system designed to cost effectively provide high levels of availability in the medical and healthcare sectors. The Modu6 (Modu8) UPS is a true modular system, it is made up of dedicated and redundant modules - power, intelligence, battery and bypass, all engineered into a design that is easily and efficiently serviceable, this architecture can scale power and runtime as demand grows or as higher levels of availability are required.
PCE’s HP Series may also be used in a fully-redundant Hot-Standby configuration. Such systems are ideal for a healthcare provider’s IT infrastructure whose power redundancy is as critical as other operations in the organization. The HP Series UPS can be fully integrated with PCE’s static switch assembly. This setup provides additional protection against possible problems in power distribution system by immediately switching to AC mains in the unlikely event of a fault within the UPS system itself.
